Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Casa Denise, located in the small hamlet of Acquaseria in San Siro, is on the first floor of a typical Lake Como house that features an extraordinary, small and private beach at hand. You will soon realize that the beach is just the first of endless easy- to-discover beauties that make Casa Denise the perfect place for a romantic holiday on the lake.
The access to the beach is from a gate in the garden and relax on a deckchair , sunbathe and sip a glass of wine at sunset will be all part of your daily routine.
The garden -the second beauty of the house - with flowers and vegetables blossoming in summer and a small table is well kept by the owner’s parents, living on the ground floor, and it will soon feature your attempts of Italian cooking (and they will always be available for a suggestion or at least for giving you fresh vegetables for free!)
Last but not least, the total absence of noise, besides of water lapping on the shore and ducks swimming.
Casa Denise consists of a large entrance, with an open, wooden kitchen and a living room with the lake-view as its most important decoration. Part of the kitchen is a comfortable table and in the living room there is enough space for a couch, two sofa beds and a TV.
Together with the bathroom, the bedroom, just around the corner, has a terrace – breathtaking view goes without saying it- with a table for two, ideal for breakfast.
Casa Denise is simplicity made cosy and can host maximum 4 guests.

The Lombardy region
Lake Como is one of the most beautiful Italian lakes and enjoys great popularity with holidaymakers. The blue waters of Lake Como have for centuries attracted visitors, including important statesmen, artists, writers.
Last century it was "discovered" by the rich Milanese families who built beautiful, romantic villas with enormous gardens. Some of them, Villa Carlotta, Balbaniello, Melzi , are open to the public and are worth a visit in spring or summer! Rich and famous people from all over the world have come here for vacation and some of them have bought beautiful mansions ( from Versace to George Clooney).
In this area you can practice water sports, hiking, mountain biking, you can go for a walk along the lakeshore, play golf or, if you prefer, you can spend a relaxing time and enjoy a quiet holiday on the sunny beaches around the lake. Tivano and Breva, the two local winds, guarantee the area a mild climate in summer and a pleasant temperature in winter.
If you want to visit the surroundings in less than 30 km you reach Lugano in Switzerland, and 90 km the famous ski resort St. Moritz. Milano is at 40 minutes by train from Como and the nearest international airports are Malpensa (Milano) and Milano Linate 90 km.
And if you love shopping the designer fashion factory outlets near Como and Swiss border are waiting for you!
San Siro is a very quiet and picturesque village, has few restaurants and “trattorie “where you can taste lake fish ( lavarello, alborelle, misoltini), supermarkets, bank, pharmacy. Thanks to its central lake position it is the base to explore the area. Its location is ideal for day trips by ferry to the other shore of the lake( Bellagio) and by car to nearby small lakeside towns and villages, Menaggio, Varenna, Tremezzo, Lenno, Como.
The water is clear and a lovely breeze comes up in the afternoon, a surfers'paradise! Along the shores you find secluded beaches and picturesque spots.
For mountain lovers there are walks through small and sunny villages. From the peaks of Monte Bregagno you have the view of 3 lakes: Como, Piano, Lugano. You ‘ll find old houses made of natural stone, little piazzas and ancient chapels which take you back in time.
For extensive shopping and night life Menaggio is nearby ( 4 km far). Menaggio is a small village with a nice boulevard, ferry boat for crossing the lake, good restaurants, trendy shops and the oldest golf course in Italy, situated on a high plateau with a spectacular view.
It is possible to visit the most beautiful towns of Lombardy and the most well known mountain scenaries of Valtellina, Val Chiavenna, Engadina, on day excursions.

"The view is fantastic!!!!"
We stayed at Casa Denise for 8 nights and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. It's the perfect location for a relaxing holiday. The accommodation itself is the middle floor of a 3 storey house. The parents of the owner live upstairs and are there if ever you need anything. They greeted us upon arrival and showed us around the property which includes a little balcony off the bedroom and the view from there is just spectacular!! It looks right out onto Lake Como. There is a garden which overlooks the beach where you can relax in the sun and enjoy the scenery. The apartment has everything you could need and is beautifully decorated and modern. The property is about a 10 minute drive from Menaggio where there is an abundance of places to eat. There is a restaurant about a 10 minute walk from the house called Creme Caramel which we would highly recommend. The house is located off a main road and there are 58 steps down to the house so would not be suitable for anyone who is unsteady on their feet. There is a private entrance onto the beach which is great but very stoney. Flip flops are definitely required!! Overall a wonderful place to stay and we would definitely go back.
